We've all had times where we're just trying to get by. We throw up our hands and think, just get me to the end of the week! In this episode, we'll look at what happens after you've coped. You've finally come through the other side. Did you change? This is Part 2 in our series.
For more about this week's show...
Kevin talks to Robyn Michele Levy. She was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's and then breast cancer. This, just after learning her father also had Parkinson's and her mother had lung cancer.
How do you keep from sinking under the weight of all that? She wrote a book
about her experiences, Most of Me - Surviving my Medical Meltdown.
The Globe and Mail calls it
"the world's happiest misery memoir".
Later in the show, the biblical Book of Job
asks the fundamental question: "Why me?" Kevin speaks with Rabbi Harold S. Kushner
about Job. Rabbi Kushner has written a very intimate look at the Book of Job asking the question, "Is God in control?" His conclusion is no - absolutely not. But that's extremely terrifying for many people.
His latest book is The Book of Job - When Bad Things Happened to a Good Person.
Throughout the show you will also hear our listeners
sharing their stories of coping with life's challenges.
